When the Police Chief is the Local Drug Lord
Will Grigg’s Liberty Minute
February 20, 2012
Constable Fred Walker of Texas’s Shelby County allegedly ordered the illegal bugging of municipal officials in the village of Tenaha, which has been at the center of a multi-million-dollar drug asset forfeiture scam.
In an affidavit, Tenaha resident Roderette McClure told the FBI that until 201o he and Walker ran a local drug ring, stealing and reselling narcotics that had been seized as evidence. When the two of them received a blackmail threat, they staged a robbery to conceal their embezzlement, then bugged the offices of other city leaders in an attempt to learn the identity of the blackmailer.
Nearly everyone in the government of the 1100-person village is implicated in a highway robbery racket facilitated by federal drug laws. A federal lawsuit describes how Tenaha police systematically targeted motorists for unjustified traffic stops, during which they were questioned as to "whether they have money or valuables.” They would then be jailed and prosecuted unless they surrendered their money and property. Actual narcotics dealers were often simply set free.
At what point are we going to admit that drug prohibition is a murderous fraud?
Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
